GO Premium X identical to GO6200WiFi

I replaced my GO6200Wifi with the new GO Premium X, thinking
I was upgrading to a newer, better model, as it has been almost
3 years since I got my 6200.

I am disappointed to find that both units are identical apart from
a couple of functions to do with IFTTT.

Even down to my new Premium X being unable to say 'Reading'
(as in the UK town), as she says it as 'reading' (as in a book) just
like my 6200Wifi does.

So, unless you are desperate to open your garage door with your
TomTom, don't bother with the Premium (X). Get a 6200/5200 instead,
which are on offer with good discounts at the moment.

I am still a TomTom fan, but this is testing my loyalty to the limit.

    My question is:
    Does anyone else agree that the GO Premium X is identical (apart from
    a couple of software features) to the GO6200WiFi?
    Should I have bothered replacing my GO6200WiFi with the GO Premium X?

    I made a statement to help others. I know it is not a question,
    I know it says 'ask a question'. I forgot to put it an a question form.

    Thank you for your kind offer to help. You are a lovely friendly person.

    As an upgrade to a 5200 or 6200 - I agree, there is no point really.

    I think it's more of an upgrade if you own a 5100 or earlier/lesser model, with the new Premium features serving as a nice extra incentive.

    All GO 5200/6200 owners hope to get premium X software because it is the same hardware.

    Well they'll be sadly disappointed.

    But the name is new and the frame in gold is also impressive so you will get something 😉
